    Technical info on Sweden phone numbers

    • Sweden phone numbers follow the E.164 international numbering plan, which includes a country code, area code, and local number. The Swedish telephone numbering system is overseen by the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority (PTS), which manages the allocation and administration of phone numbers.
    • Country code: +46
    • Area codes (geographical codes):
    • Area codes in Sweden are 1-3 digits long and begin with a 0. Larger cities have shorter area codes, while smaller towns and rural areas have longer ones. Here are some examples:
    • Stockholm: 08
    • Gothenburg: 031
    • Malmö: 040
    • Uppsala: 018
    • Local numbers:
    • Local numbers in Sweden are typically 5-8 digits long, with the total length of the area code and local number always equaling 9 digits (excluding the country code). For example, a Stockholm number with area code 08 might have a 7-digit local number: 08-123 45 67.
    • Mobile numbers:
    • Mobile numbers in Sweden usually have 3-digit area codes starting with 7 (e.g., 070, 072, 073) followed by a 6-digit local number. Just like landlines, the total length of the area code and local number is 9 digits.
    • Non-geographical numbers:
    • Non-geographical numbers are used for services that are not tied to a specific location, such as toll-free and premium rate numbers. These numbers also have 3-digit area codes beginning with a 2, 8, or 9, followed by a 6-digit local number.
    • Dialing within Sweden:
    • When calling within Sweden, you must dial the area code followed by the local number (e.g., 08-123 45 67 for a Stockholm number). If the area code starts with a 0, it must be included in the dialing sequence.
    • Dialing from outside Sweden:
    • When calling a Swedish number from outside the country, you must first dial your country's international access code (e.g., 00 for most European countries, 011 for the US and Canada), followed by Sweden's country code (+46), the area code without the leading 0, and the local number. For example, to call a Stockholm number from the US, you would dial 011-46-8-123 45 67.
    • Emergency numbers:
    • In Sweden, the emergency number for police, fire, and ambulance services is 112.
    • * If you need emergency services capability on your FlyNumber contact us directly

    The history behind Swedish phone numbers

    • Early beginnings: The first telephone exchange in Sweden was established in 1880, soon after Alexander Graham Bell's invention of the telephone. The initial telephone numbers were short, often only two or three digits, and were assigned sequentially as new subscribers joined the network.
    • Introduction of area codes: As the telephone network expanded, area codes were introduced to facilitate direct dialing between different regions. In the 1950s and 1960s, Sweden's telephone numbering system was restructured to accommodate these area codes, which were typically 2-3 digits long.
    • National renumbering in 1991: To streamline the numbering system and prepare for future growth, Sweden underwent a national renumbering in 1991, known as the "Phoneday" (Telefonens Dag). During this process, area codes and local numbers were merged into a single, uniform system. All geographic numbers were assigned a fixed length of 7 digits (excluding the trunk prefix), and area codes were shortened to 1-3 digits.
    • Introduction of non-geographic numbers: In addition to geographic numbers, Sweden introduced non-geographic numbers for services such as mobile phones, toll-free numbers, and premium-rate services. These numbers typically begin with different prefixes to distinguish them from geographic numbers.
    • Transition to a closed numbering plan: In the late 1990s, Sweden switched to a closed numbering plan, which required callers to dial the full number, including the area code, even for local calls. This change allowed for more efficient use of the available number space and simplified the dialing process.
    • Number portability: To promote competition and consumer choice, Sweden introduced number portability in the early 2000s, allowing subscribers to retain their phone numbers when switching service providers. This policy applies to both fixed-line and mobile numbers.

    SMS - possible to receive

    Aug 18, 2013


    Would it be possible to receive an SMS? I really don’t mind if it gets emailed or forwarded to the destination number, but at the moment I can get a call come through but inbound SMS seems to simply be discarded.

    There is an “SMS History” tab, perhaps you are working on such a feature?

    It would be great to give out a number knowing it is fully usable, so if it is not currently something being worked on could I please request it as a feature? (presumably emailing is the least technically difficult/expensive to achieve?)

    Thanks in advance

    NYC phone numbers -Inside scoop

    Nov 01, 2022

I’ve been outside the city for a while now so […]

    How our aesthetically pleasing PBX grid makes configuring your call flow effortless (and fun)

    Jul 04, 2022

I personally was always attracted to grids, so anytime I got to use them, for example- in school or other places , I was always delighted. Then, around 2012 we released […]
